The Ballad Of The Man In The Moon

The Ballad Of The Man In The Moon

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

The only thing the man in the moon knows

Is how to be a bright spot where there is darkness.

His smile is an illusion created by the hope

For the children of the night

Cause no one actually sees his dark side.

In those times he can’t be seen

Is when he looks to become anew,

But once the cycle starts again

It is the same old face

In an all too familiar space.

A friendly wave from an ocean away

Only blurs his reflection

But he can clearly see gravitating towards him

Is both a blessing and a curse.

In the end his world will always be turning

As long as he remembers he revolves around it.

Thank you very much.
A cleverly worded poem with some interesting ideas. I think the last two lines are true for most humans too!! The ballad format you have used is unusual for a ballad. But I really did like the poem.

Thank you too
The Man On The Moon has clear insight, patience and resolve. He knows his strengths and his limits too. There is so much to learn from him. Beautifully written...
